In Georgia this week former Cincinnati Bengals Pro-Bowler Carl Pickens was arrested after cops say he attacked his wife and pinned her down by her neck. From the TMZ report:
According to the Gwinnett County Police Department, Pickens and his wife got into an argument on Dec. 5th … and it was all about why his wife allowed her friend to join them on a movie date.
Cops say the argument escalated … with Pickens slamming her onto a couch and then pinning her down by the neck.
Cops say … Carl’s wife says the ex-NFL star also threw various objects around the house and then stormed out.
When cops arrived to the scene, cops say they could see a bruise on the woman’s neck.
